Ingredients for two people:


  • Two fresh Bahamas conchs.
  • Two tomatoes.
  • Two onions.
  • Two green peppers.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Salt and pepper.


Let’s go! Once you’ve bought all the ingredients on the list, we can start to prepare this delicious tropical salad featuring Bahamas conch.

Cut the conchs, tomatoes, onions, and green peppers into very small cubes. Mix them together in a bowl and dress them to taste with lemon juice, orange juice, salt, and pepper. Next add the pineapple and mango, also in very small pieces.

Remember, aesthetics matter. If you present the dish attractively, your guests will be bowled over. In this case, we recommend that you not throw away the conch shells; they can be used as a decorative element. Look at how it turned out for us:
