Gourmet dining in Exuma must include a ride to Steventon to Big D’s restaurant and watch the master prepare a conch salad. This Bahamian delicacy is not to be missed and Big D makes an entertaining presentation with full description, showmanship, all with his signature smile.
The ingredients for this delicacy include raw conch, fresh tomatoes, Exuma onions, fresh Exuma salt, fresh peppers
all finely chopped then drizzle squeezed orange and lime. Adding a Scotch Bonnet pepper is optional.
The real skill is extracting the conch meat from the shell. Knowing exactly where on the shell to hammer a hole to place a sharp slim knifein to cut the foot free so the meat slides out. Then you are faced with knowing how to remove the skin and other parts from the meat. My recommendation would be to leave it to the experts and Darrren certainly qualifies .
That is just one of the many ways to enjoy gourmet dining in Exuma.
