Recipe Description
On Christmas Eve, my family's table was always laden with a variety of fish and seafood, served in salads, baked, stuffed, sauced and fried. My father's favorite was this salad made with conch. Crunchy celery complements the slightly chewy seafood, though fresh fennel can be substituted.

When You come to a dark tube filled with a spongy matter, pull or cut it out and discard it, as it can be gritty. There is another tube on the outside of the body that does nor need to be removed.
