ConchConch salad, conch callaloo, conch ceviche, and, of course, conch fritters dominate menus across the Caribbean, but what is conch?

It’s actually the second most popular edible snail in the world, surpassed only by escargot. If you’re squeamish about eating a snail, start with the deep fried conch fritters to acquaint your palate with the flavor.
