“Conch fritters are a great favourite with people in the BAHAMAS, where this shellfish is found in abundance. In Geat Exuma, the Out-Island Regatta is held in April and during this period, the local conch seller makes fritters all day,starting at 6 a.m and using about 50 conch. She demonstrates her method smiling broadly, "Ever'body likes fritters, yez ma'am". From Caribbean Cooking For Pleasure, Mary Slater.”
