Conch Salad Bahamian-Style

If you are a seafood lover and in the mood for something that gives you a tropical feel, you may be interested in trying a conch salad Bahamian-style to cool you off and please your palette. A big seller in Florida and the Bahamas, conch can be found in many restaurants down the coast and has even been known to possess powers as an aphrodisiac. This salad, common on islands across the Caribbean, is also known for its sweet flavor. Conch, now more commonly farm-raised, is also more tasty with sea salt. It takes three or four medium-sized conchs to make a delectable pound of this island favorite.
