Seashell

conch sea shellI bought this seashell as a souvenir while we were in Belize last fall and it wins the prize for Strangest Thing I've Ever Eaten. Not this exact same conch, another one. In a soup. It was rather chewy. Tasted like chicken?

Yuk! Why does everything taste like chicken. Really an unusual picture. Great job.

Great pic! It's hard to tell that close up that it's a seashell. Love the attention to detail

I have tried to like seafood, but I think I will continue to stick with my landfood.

Donna said...

No thanks. It's a wonderful picture, though.

Amber said...

Tastes like chicken, eh? I've heard THAT one before...

Linda said...

Tastes like chicken? I would have thought it would taste like crunchy, salty seashell! Pretty color, though!

Busy Mom said...

Hmmm. Dunno about eating it, but, it's a cool picture!

Stephanie said...

I had read that you could eat those. Never met anyone who actually did. Ok well I guess I haven't really met you, but you know what I mean! :)

I'll remember to pass if ever offered Conch!

Beckie said...

Yep, another great picture. I'm never disappointed when I visit. If it was chewy, did it remind you of scallops?

Have a wonderful Wednesday. Mine is up on My Photo Blog.

Bought a shell in Grenada like that. Didn't eat it though.

I like Isabelle's "chicken of the sea" comment. Beautiful pic. Belize? I'm green.

Very interesting picture. I went to Key West years and years ago when I was in college and Conch soup was popular down there. I never tried it although it sounded interesting. In the years since that trip, I learned I'm allergic to some shellfish, oysters, clams, and muscles to be specific, and I wouldn't be surprised if I'm allergic to conch as well.

Pretty shot, but blech on the idea of eating it ;) Well, the insides.

Patty said...

Cool picture. Doesn't everything taste like chicken?

Write From Karen said...

It looks almost fluid ... and slick ... and slimy. lol

You're a BRAVE woman. There is NO way I'd put that in my mouth. But then again, I'm not a big seafood fan.

Great picture though. *grin*

It's great that you try new things. Me, I'm not so brave.
