This is a colorful chowder with a creamy base that's flavored with coconut and ginger that goes surprisingly well together. Conch can be difficult to find in some regions, so you can use another seafood product such as lobster or crab (which are abundant throughout the Bahamas), or even scallops, shrimp or tilapia work well in this recipe.
