Conch Fritters

Steve Lucas gave this recipe to me. Back in the '80's he was a well known U/W photographer. His pictures often graced the pages of Skin Diver magazine.

Conch Fritters

2 lbs conch, diced (I cut up in big chunks and use the food processor)
2 tubes Ritz crackers, crushed – I use about 1-1/2 tubes to start then add if necessary
¼ cup peeled, seeded, and diced tomatoes
¼ cup chopped parsley
½ cup chopped onion
½ tsp garlic paste (Lawry’s)
6 eggs, add 1 at a time
1 finely chopped pickled jalapeno (Old El Paso)

Mix together, form in balls (golf ball), and deep fry until golden brown.

Trust me you won't be asking "Where's the conch".

Craig

Your recipe sounds just like mine. I love making conch chowder or fritters. When I lived on a sailboat for part of a year, we ate conch alot. They were quite difficult to retrieve from their shells. That part- I left to the guys. It was a learning experience. All the Florida lobster and conch I wanted for many months. It was heaven...
