Conch fritters

Apple Crisp Picture

1. Rough chop the Conch and set aside.

Ron's Note:
If you're using Fresh Conch, the first step would be to pound it, or it'll end up real tough.

2. Mix together all of the other ingredients, but withhold a little of the flour. Add the chopped Conch and mix up well. The batter should be fairly thick. You should be able to place some on a spoon, turn the spoon over, and it'll stay there. If it's not thick enough add more flour, a little at a time, until you've got the proper consistency.

3. Heat oil at least 1" deep in a black frying pan. When the oil is hot enough, about 350 degrees, place fritters into the hot oil. You to tablespoons to make fritters. get some of the fritter batter in one spoon, then use the other to slide it directly into the hot oil.

4. Fry until they're brown on one side, then flip them over to brown the other side. Take them out of the oil, and place them on a grate to drain. Sprinkle immediately with salt.

5. Serve immediately while hot, with Cocktail Sauce and Tarter Sauce on the side.
