To enhance the taste, the chef adds a sprinkle of salt, a dash of black pepper, and a squeeze of lime, lemon juice, or orange, infusing the salad with tangy and zesty notes. The lime or lemon juice not only adds flavor but also acts as a "cooking" agent, effectively marinating the conch and bringing out its natural taste.
