Conch Fritters are a Bermudian classic, specifically around Cup Match time. If you can’t make it to the game this year, try making your own at home, along with our other classic Cup Match foods!

 

Ingredients:
1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of nutmeg
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1lb conch, finely chopped
2 tbsp onion minced
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp thyme
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
Lemon and lime wedges
Vegetable oil for deep-frying

 

Directions:
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, ginger and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Beat the egg together with the milk and stir quickly into the flour mixture. Do to overwork the batter.
Add conch, onion, garlic, peppers, and thyme, stirring gently. Drop tablespoons of the lumpy batter into hot oil in batches – do not overcrowd. Fry until golden brown (2 to 3 minutes).
Drain on paper towels and serve with lemon and lime wedges and a little mustard mayonnaise (mix Dijon mustard, mayonnaise and your favourite hot sauce to taste).
