    Conch Salad

    Just thought of this and I have been going to Aruba for a very long time lol - Is there a place on the street or anywhere that makes a good conch salad. This is always on my list when I travel to the Bahamas but dont see or hear of this too much in Aruba. Is there a conch presence around the island?

    I've had the conch fritters at West Deck that are really good.
    I want to grow my own food, but I can't find any bacon seeds...

    yeah have had the fritters also not the same as the salad. Done the right way they remove the conch from the shell, cut up in pieces chop it up with some onion tomato and a pepper preferably a goat or scotch bonnet then mix well add to a plate or bowl then squeeze / drizzle with fresh lemon and orange juice over the entire salad - yummm!!!

    I have had the fritters at the West desk many times are really enjoy them. However, during trip this past march the did not have them There explanation was that the Couch are pretty much depleted on Aruba and they are imported. Evidently in March there was a supply issue.

    I miss the conch fritters at West Deck. They did not have them while I was there in June or this month. Instead they have a cod fritter which was pretty good but not the same. Years ago I had grilled Conch at Pinchos which was very good..
