Conch Fritters and Key Lime Pie

Long before we arrived in Key West, we had decided that we wouldn't leave there without sampling some of the food they are famous for.  We chose  the Two Friends restaurant, and we were not disappointed.

Key West is known as the Conch Republic, so you know we had to have some conch fritters while we were there.  I thought they were extremely tasty, especially when I double-dipped. The fritters were spicy and that was what I tasted most, so I still can't tell you exactly how conch tastes.

We also ordered Buffalo wings, just in case we didn't like the conch fritters.  We were stuffed after a dinner of various items,  but we had to order some of the Key lime pie that Key West is famous for.

I make Key lime pies using sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream, and frozen limeade. I rarely never have to throw any out.  However, my pies can't compare with this one.  It was sweet and tart and creamy and so good!  I have been comparing recipes and plan to make Key lime pies until they taste like this one.
