Here is everything you need to know about making Conch Salad,
and then how to feed the Sting Ray after wards..
In Elizabeth Harbour, you will find Georgetown at the main land, and stocking island, the protects the harbour from the Exuma Sound, which is pretty much the Ocean if you ask me. Stocking Island is the home to the famous Chat ‘n Chill Beach, and where AJ claimed his stake in his own Conch Salad Bar stand on the beach. Almost each morning he will personally go conch hunting in his secret locations around the islands. Conch is no endangered in the Bahamas, and can be found in an abundance, and is harvested with care, only conch of certain size can be taken. The the day I met AJ, he found 120 conch. He than keeps them fresh by only extracting them from the shell as he makes each salad fresh for each customer. In the video below, he shows how this is done. Then he dices up onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, salt and pepper to taste. Then the diced up conch, and what really makes it taste so good is the fresh squeezed, lemon, lime and oranges.
AJ has also trained and tamed the local sting rays as he feeds them daily. Watch the video below to see Alex feed the sting ray.
