Conch soup

A delicious soup that would easily transport you to the Caribbean with its flavor. This conch soup is packed with not just conch meat but also corn, potatoes, carrots, and dumplings. The perfect soup option.   I feel like I'm becoming the girl with all the conch recipes. I was gifted some conch by a friend and I just want to share all of the delicious ways we use it at home and across the Caribbean. We have surely seen that it is a meat that can be used in a variety of ways. I've already shown you how to curry it , along with having it steamed and now as a soup. If you are new to conch and eating it, I have an " about conch post" where I go into detail about what the meat is, what does conch taste like, how long it will take to cook, and the different methods to tenderize this meat. In the Caribbean soup is king. There is no season for it. In fact, Saturday is THE day for soup. And soup with just about anything. We love a good hearty soup that can include one

Curry Conch

A bold, flavorful dish of tenderized conch meat, cooked down in a spicy curry sauce. Pair this with some boiled dumplings and ground provision and your guests will be eating out of your hands.

After that, it's just time to pair it with some dumplings and an array of ground provisions. Yummy. Like shrimp or curry crab , this seafood is simmered down into a nice curry sauce with or without coconut milk depending on your preference. (I prefer it with). This Caribbean favorite requires a little work prior to making it tasty. This recipe was the last recipe my dad made before he passed away, and it has taken me a little bit of time to get it posted. He loved cooking untraditional meats like conch, and other meats we call "wild meat" which would include things like agouti, rabbit, wilks etc. I

Orange Ginger Chicken
