Yum! I've eaten conch and it's really good. Love interesting recipes like this one, and really need to go to the Bahamas soon! Lol
I had conch when I was in the Caribbean. Really delicious...

This recipe brings back such memories. My kids and I caught a conch in Puerto Rico, and some kind fishermen showed us how to grill and eat it, right there on the beach! A wonderful experience, and I look forward to trying this recipe. Donna John
