DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Combine conch with chopped vegetables.
  • 2. Add egg.
  • 3. Mix flour, baking powder and salt together and add to conch mixture.
  • 4. Season to taste.
  • 5. Form into balls 1 - 2 inches in size.
  • 6. Heat oil in a deep skillet to 375 deg. To prevent cooling the oil too quickly, drop one fritter at a time into the pan, waiting a few seconds before adding additional fritters.
  • 7. Fry 3 - 5 minutes until golden brown on all sides, turning the fritters as they rise to the surface.
  • 8. Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve with Key Lime Mustard Sauce (recipe to come) or other coctail sauce.
