For this charming video, we visited the sparkling shores of Harbour Island, one of the most gorgeous beaches in the Bahamas. The home of friendly people, Harbour Island's lush waters also produce one of the most beautiful seashells — the giant conch. Used to make musical instruments and pearls, the conch is also filled with delicious meat that's considered a delicacy.
Locals have a long history using conch meat to make a flavorful salad. This Conch salad is ever popular at Harbour Island, and a great place to enjoy it is at their waterside shack famously known as Queen Conch.
This exquisite salad is made with chopped conch meat mixed with diced tomato, onion and green bell pepper. To spice it up, a fiery hot spice native to the Bahamas called Goat Pepper is mixed in. The salad is then garnished with freshly squeezed lime and orange juice. Salt and pepper are added to taste. Serve this conch salad right away for the best taste and texture.
Inspired by the sunny shores of the Bahamas where life is casual and relaxed, a coast-side-themed party with easy beach party foods is great option for summer entertaining. Less is more with food served up on a sunny afternoon or warm evening, so these beach party foods, like the conch salad look most appetizing served in a casual setting. Create an informal seaside look with an all-weather white table and woven placemats. Choose shatterproof melamine serveware in ocean-inspired hues crafted to look like glass and ceramic; and square-shaped platters in tropical colors. Mix in striped linens and some fresh flowers as a simple centerpiece.
Complement these irresistible beach party foods with a fresh, chilled Cape Cod cocktail, whose colors compliment the tropical hues of the table.
