Ingredients
  

  • 4 conch cleaned
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 bouquet garni thyme, parsley
  • 3 - 4 juicy tomatoes medium size, or about 1 cup
  • 2 scallions chopped roughly
  • 4 chives finely chopped
  • 1 sprig fresh flat parsley finely chopped
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 2 hot peppers Scotch Bonnet or Habanero or 1/4 teaspoon Hot and Spicy Original with Herbs
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion julienned
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Seafood seasoning optional

Instructions
 

  • In a large heavy bottom pot or a pressure cooker, make a court bouillon with the conches, the bouquet garni, 2 scallions, 1 hot pepper, and 1 crushed garlic clove. Cook for about 40 to 50 minutes until fully cooked in a pressure cooker. Boil for a longer period of time on a stovetop if using a heavy bottom pan (this process will take about 1hr 30 mins or 2 hours). Strain the liquid and set aside.
  • Cut the conches into pieces. Finely mince the chives and parsley. Crushed the remaining garlic.
  • Quarter tomatoes and remove seeds. In a pan, heat oil, add garlic, and minced herbs. Add tomatoes and let cook until the tomatoes have released all their juices. Add conch pieces and let pan-fried for a few minutes. Add conch cooking liquid mixed with lime juice. Add 1 whole pepper, onion, and thyme. Cover and let simmer on medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove pepper before serving.

Notes

You can also add seafood seasoning if preferred.
