Conch Soup
This creamy soup, laden with chunks of succulent conch meat and vegetables, is a Honduran specialty from the Caribbean coast and is flavored with coconut milk, cumin, cilantro, garlic, ginger, and chiles.

Fresh conch should have a sweet, not fishy, aroma. The tough flesh is usually tenderized by long, slow cooking, parboiling, or pounding, as in this recipe. If conch meat is unavailable, substitute an equal amount of scallops, clams, or any sweet shellfish.

Recipe Ingredients:
6 cups chicken broth
3/4 pound yucca, peeled and cubed (about 2 cups)
2 carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (14.5-ounce) can low-sodium diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 serrano chile or other chile of choice, finely chopped (more or less to taste)
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1 pound conch meat, cut into small pieces and pounded or scallops, clams or any sweet shellfish
1 (12-ounce) can NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Cooking Directions:
1 – Place chicken stock, yucca and carrots in large saucepan on high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Add onion and tomatoes; cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
2 – Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, chiles and ginger; cook for 1 minute or until garlic turns translucent. Add conch meat; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add conch mixture to saucepan. Stir in evaporated milk, coconut milk, salt, black pepper and cumin. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro and serve.
Makes 10 (about 1 cup) servings.

Today’s Menu: Bob Evans (Home Delivered)

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had rain showers in the morning and cloudy and 68 degrees for the afternoon. We have had up to 3-4 inches of rain the past 3 days, a lot of local flooding. So not much going on, waiting out the virus. The Kitchen is closed and we had Bob Evans deliver our Dinner tonight! Mom had a Slow Roasted Turkey Dinner while I had the Lemon Pepper Sole.

 

 

 

I was tired of cooking and I needed a day off. So I had an email come in from Bob Evans come yesterday and they were offering Free Delivery! So it had been quite some time since I had Bob Evans so it sounded good. Mom ordered the Slow Roasted Turkey and Dressing Dinner. With sides of Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Stuffing, Carrots, Cranberry Relish, and a Roll. For myself I ordered the Lemon Pepper Sole. I had sides of Sugar Snap Peas and a Roll, I gave the Roll to Mom. Both Dinners were Delicious and they arrived Hot. We Really enjoyed it! Thank you Bob Evans! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
