Conch fritters are highly-favored down home delicacies enjoyed by natives and visitors alike. These hard to resist, bite-sized treats are usually served as appetizers along with a cocktail dipping sauce. As a variation, lobster/crawfish could be used instead of conch.

  • 1 small finely chopped onion

Directions: 
  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350 degrees
  2. Clean and skin conch and put through a meat grinder or food processor.
  3. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl to make a batter (not too thick and not too runny).
  4. Drop batter by tablespoon into hot oil and fry for approx. 10 min. or until golden brown.
  5. Allow fritters to drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve with dipping sauce


Dipping Sauce:
In a bowl mix:
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
