    Manami's Note:

    A friend of mine, Debbie, is from the Bahamas and she gave me this recipe. This is a traditional Bahamian recipe that is made with conch, the wonderful shellfish that is delicous but not so easy to find outside of the Bahamas. We, here in South Florida, are very close to Key West; the Conch Republic. These fritters are great as appetizers, finger foods or very tasty hors d'oeuvres to accompany your favorite rum punch or tropical drink! Conch can be replaced with any seafood. Make this batter with calamari, shrimp, imitation crab meat and lobster & see how awesome it turns out. Read about CONCH on the web, it's interesting. BEWARE - these are HOT.

      I bought fresh conch while on vacation. :) I baked at 400 F on a generously buttered cookie sheet. for about 11 minutes. I also drizzled a little melted a little margarine atop each before baking. everyone was very pleased. I loved the veggies in it. The sauce was fantastic.
      I will be trying again with kalamari, as that is more available here in oregon (back home).
      Thank you

      Clearly a great recipe. My guests were pleased, even though I had to weaken the "sauce' because there were older patrons. All in all, a great starter
