CONCH LAMBI








CONCH LAMBI
....a great traditional Haiti food recipe....!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 pounds shelled conch, cleaned, skinned
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, peeled, halved, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced shallots
  • 1 tomato, peeled, seeded, chopped
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 Scotch bonnet chili, minced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Hot cooked rice
INSTRUCTIONS
Pound the conch to 1/8-inch thick with a mallet; cut it into 1 1/2-inch squares. Place the conch in a medium bowl; squeeze the limes over the top.
Add the lime rinds and water to cover. Cover and refrigerate 1-1 1/2 hours. Drain and discard the rinds. In a Dutch oven or large pot, melt the butter. Add the onion, garlic and shallots and sauté until soft but not brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato, water, tomato paste,
thyme, minced chili and conch. Heat over medium to boiling; reduce the heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, until the conch is fork tender,
45-50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. The haiti food recipe is ready to serve over hot cooked rice. Nice and delicious !
