Also, since I got sick of mexican ceviche (too much fish and octopus tentacles) I wondered if I could get some conch. Checking with our local seafood market, they called their supplier who said they did carry it and could deliver it to the market. It was around $12 a pound. I also found that most of the markets buy from a central disty, so if you are in the mood for conch, check it out. A pound of conch makes a lot of ceviche.

Since it's so hard to get really fresh fish here in small town midwest, I've resorted to using shrimp to make ceviche here. I do boil it for about 30 seconds, most recipes that I saw seemed to recommend boiling shellfish briefly. Jean

hey bobber, a good substitute for conch is some diced abalone, you can get it in a can, makes great ceviche!! of course, i like fresh triggerfish the best,

I always keep a pound or so of frozen conch on hand. If I run out, my local meat market is now keeping it on hand or can get it within a day or so. Never got into abalone, have to try it sometime I guess. I like the triggers on a barbecue, seems we always catch more of those than snappers. This is making me hungry.
