Conch Fritters

  • Yield: 18 to 24 fritters


  • 6 ounces conch meat, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Creole spice
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Up to 1 1/2 cups flour
  • Tartar sauce, for serving (optional)


  • Slowly heat oil in a deep-fryer to 360 degrees F while you prepare batter.
  • In a bowl combine conch, eggs, Creole spice, green pepper, scallions, garlic, baking powder and milk; mix it up and season with salt and pepper. Add enough flour to stiffen batter: it should be able to drop nicely from spoon into hot grease. Test a few times before making many fritters at a time. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into deep-fryer. With a long handled utensil, move them around as they fry. Drain on paper towels and serve with tartar sauce if you like.
