During a visit to Belize, I was intrigued by how the locals prepared conch cόcteles. The components can range from carrots and jicama, to practically any other vegetable. The beautiful shell has been used historically in many ways, such as decorative ornaments, for jewelry and even as a musical instrument. After much research, I ventured into preparing a cocktail starting with fresh, live-in-the-shell conch. The end result came out beautifully; however, for practical purposes, I recommend, if available, using cleaned and prepared conch meat. Keep in mind that conch’s consistency differs from that of fish. I hope you enjoy this delicacy.
