from what i have read so far, they are really hard, so they have to be pounded.
i am jjust wondering what if i just cook them for a long time? would that help?
That sounds like abalone..
I don't know what conch fish are, I'll have to look them up.
Here's a link for you with several recipes, including one for conch steak -
Hmmm - why cook them? I've eaten it raw before. Basically while in the Bahamas I dove down in the ocean and pick up one of these huge conch shells. I brought it up and a local working at our hotel showed me what to do with it. We broke it out of its shell, rubbed the meat in the sand to clean it, rinsed it in the ocean to get the sand off and then simply bit into it. Yum!
can you really eat raw? people say that it is tough. if it is tough even after they are cooked. can you actually chew them raw?
i am living by the beach, and i have seen several conch fish in the ocean floor. i really wanna give it try. but they have big eyes, i feel a little uneasy killing them. i don't know why. i hve no problems of eating the lobsters.
i also want to get a real one, so i can take the shell back home.
Here's a link to click on that has a lot of information about conch -
I guess you can eat it raw. It was yummy - only a couple of us were willing to try it. The local Bahaman man that helped "prepare" it said that was the best way to eat it.
It helped me - I didn't know about them at all. I also pronounced 'conch' incorrectly...
I have to say that the whole eating of conch meat makes me queasy.
