Conch Fritters


Ingredients (serves 4 to 6):


12 conchs (about 2 lb) meat extracted, cleaned and ground in a food grinder
3 eggs, separated, and the whites stiffly beaten
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 large tomato, peeled seeded and chopped
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp.
black pepper

1 cup fine cracker crumbs
1 Tbsp. cream (optional)


Cooking Directions:


Combine the Conch meat, egg yolks, onion, tomato, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper, and crumbs. Blend thoroughly. If the mixture is too stiff to drop from a spoon, blend in the cream. Fold the egg whites into the mixture. Heat a well oiled iron skillet or griddle to sizzling. Drop the mixture by tablespoons onto the hot pan. Cook until browned on one side-about two minutes-then brown the other side.
