Food Object 056 Conch | Hunting Caye | Sapodilla Cayes | Belize.
My catch of the day. I found this 20cm beauty just 2 metres bellow the water surface. Conch meat is dense and chewy like calamari (and taste similar). Cutting the conch into very small cubes is the most important step to prepare a Conch Ceviche, a dish that is common in Belize (also in Bahamas). After covering the conch cubes with lime juice and let it marinate for a couple of hours (if possible in the fridge), add chopped cilantro, onion, tomato some chili (or tabasco) and salt.
