    Add the flour and stir to make a roux. Let the roux simmer for about 5 minutes. Don't let the roux burn!

    Add the potatoes, tomato paste. Stir and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
    Meanwhile, take the conch out of the water and cut it into small chunks.
    Add the water, conch and the juice of 1 lime to the large pot.
    Cover the pot and simmer until the potatoes are done, about 30 minutes.
    Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
