Method:
Wash the conchs in cold water, cut into cubes, place into a large serving bowl and sprinkle with the salt.
Mix the lime and lemon juices together in a small dish. Crush the hot peppers into the juices; pour over the conch adding the diced vegetables and mix gently.
Taste-test and adjust the seasonings. Spoon into salad cups or place on a bed of lettuce. Serve with a small dish of lime juice and crushed peppers on the side.

Variation:
Serve in half avocado or tomato star.

Tip:
Fresh conchs are best, but frozen conchs can be used. Special order conchs from your fish market.
