I have one of those tenderizers with a bunch of needle like spikes, I give it a thorough work over with the tenderizer. Then it's the meat mallet with the textured side, I beat it until it's about 1/4 inch thick, then FEB (flour, egg, bread crumbs-Panko) and into the hot oil. It comes out crispy on the outside and tender inside. I love my conch

I've used it to make ceviche like in Turks or Bahamas. Same method, but I beat it with a mallet, then chop into small pieces. "Almost" the same in my opinion.

Flatten it first with a kitchen mallet meat tenderizer....

When making conch fritters we put the meat in the food processor along with the other ingredients....it comes out in pretty small pieces, which are a lot easier to get down..

Well, a hell of a lot better than chewing big pieces of conch up...

I still have most of my teeth and will use them...but they need to last me another twenty years....

Tenderized with a tenderizer mallet, or if for conch salad diced finely.
