Ingredients

  • 1 lb conch
  • 1 green bell pepper

  • 2 yellow scotch bonnet pepper (if you do not want it spicy, remove seeds)
  • 1 onion
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 stalk celery

  • 2 teaspoon Spice King All Purpose Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup bread flour
  • 3-4 cups v8 vegetable juice or (enough to make a thick batter)
  • 8 dashes crystals hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg

Directions

  1. Soak conch in water with a few sprinkles of meat tenderizer, and 2 sprigs of fresh thyme over night, or for at least an hour.
  2. The next night, drain and cut conch into fine pieces with knife or process in food processor. Cut vegetables in small dice and sauté with a little olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together and allow to sit for at least an hour to allow flavors to develop.
  4. Fry in peanut oil at 350 degrees or medium high heat until done. (Before frying I season my oil by sautéing onions, bay leaves, peppercorns, scotch bonnet peppers in the oil.)
  5. When fritters come out of the oil, sprinkle lightly with Spice King Gourmet Seafood Seasoning.
