“This is a traditional Bahamian recipe that is made with conch, this wonderful shellfish that is delicious but so hard to find out from the Bahamas. These fritters are great as an appetizer, finger food or as a very tasty hors d'oeuvre to accompany your favorite tropical drink!”

This came out better than restaurant conch fritters!! I made a couple of changes, I used 1/4 cup corn flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour, used 2 cups of conch (be sure to chop them up real small, I chopped them up too big), omitted onion and bell pepper. This came out so good. I can't wait to cook them for company.

I lived in the US Virgin Islands for 6yrs. I would have to say after eating conch fritters for at least that long, that these are just as good, if not better.

I have tried this recipe only to find that it does very well without adding green peppers. Still has great taste. I had to increase the flour to a full cup I also added approx. 4 full conch, not all markets sell just one cup. Dipping sauce was too mayonaise based so I reduced that to 1 tsp and added equal amount of horseradish sauce for a nice kick and taste.
