Making a Conch Salad

Courtesy of Da Conch Shack, on Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos Islands, is this beautifully prepared conch salad, pulled fresh from the ocean.  Once the conch shell hits the work table, they knock a hole in the top of the shell, to expose the tendon which holds the conch inside.  In one swift motion with his knife, the tendon is cut, the meat extracted, and the shell is tossed.  Be sure to enjoy the delicious result with a cold Carib or one of Da Conch Shack’s fabulous rum punches.  For more on Da Conch Shack, and why it is one of our favorite beach bars, read on…
