Notes
  1. •If the outer skin is still attached start at the black claw and trim away all the outer covering and membranes from the underside until you are only left with clean white and gray meat.
  2. •If you buy conch from a fish market; have the fish vendor run the meat through the tenderizer 2 or 3 times, unless you’re making conch salads, then you just want to chop the meat into tiny pieces.
