I actually combined parts of the 2 conch chowder recipes posted here. I follwed this recipe except I used 3 regular potatoes cut up, left out the marjoram, and simmered for an hour. The result was a tasty dish that resembles Manhattan clam Chowder, except has conch meat. Conch meat is a very mild flavored meat that almost tastes like a cross between chicken and crab meat, if you can imagine that.
