Not many people know what is a conch (pronounced konk).Conch is a common name for a large sea snails found in warm water throughout US and south america . I'm not sure wheter conch could be found in tropical waters or not but i had encounter almost similar species in sabah . Check out MASMZ blog on SIPUT KAHANGA in sabah.
I had went to Southsea Seafood in Subang for my dinner and had the chance to sample conch - sashimi style . I was told that it can be cooked into different style but it was highly recommended to eat it raw.The meat is a bit tough with a slight sweet taste.It will cost you around RM 13 per 100gm with an average weight between 300 to 500 gram per conch.
As a food source conch has a great nutritional value and is a very high source of protein.I was told that it is also a natural aphrodisiac. The well develop foot muscle of the conch is what provides the sweet white meat .
