Filed under: Uncategorized — Island girl @ 12:01 pm

We love Bahamian food and our friends Gayle, Sarah and Joe brought us Conch from the Bahamas. We cooked up a traditional dinner of conch fritters, peas and rice, and fried plantains. The next day Jonny made conch ceviche! It is fantastic! We love sharing these recipes with you. Of course I forgot to take pictures – again.  The Bahamas are known for lobster and conch. Here is Jonny after a lobster dive in the Bahamas!
