This creamy soup, laden with chunks of succulent conch meat and vegetables, is a Honduran specialty from the Caribbean coast. Flavored with coconut milk, cumin, cilantro, garlic, ginger, and chile, this soup is one of many seafood dishes enjoyed by Catholics on days when red meat is not allowed. 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.

Ingredients
