I've always wondered if they'd work in a fritter as well.

I wonder if this recipe would work with crab meat instead of conch?

Probably so, but crab meat is so delicate that I would think of another alternative. My recommendation as a conch substitute is lobster or calamari steak. Cook it very lightly first - until it just turns opaque. Then cut it into chunks.

Is it possible to buy conch in the states?

Yes - at least in Texas. We get conch at our local high-end store "Central Market". Current price is $22/pound. Like I said - lobster is a damned good substitute!

Not quite like it is at Hidden Treasure, where we walk in front of the house and get all we want - for nothing.

Good idea to use the potato.

If substituting the conch what quantities should be used? Two med conch = how much meat? A cup or two?

thx

Calamari is the best substitute that I know of.
