On the way home, we kept wondering if he was going to fit into our biggest pot. Here he is, sitting the sink. I wondered if I should wash him before cooking him.
I showed him to Ruby, but she was indifferent.
As you can see, he fit in the pot! Just barely, but he fit. I felt bad cooking the poor little guy.
Directions said to cook him for 10 min once water starts boiling; that was way too long, as the meat turned out a bit chewy. I'll know next time.
The funniest part was Husband trying to extract the meat using... a nut cracker. We accidentally gave away our seafood crackers when we moved, and a nearby grocery store did not carry any. We had to get creative, but it worked. :)
The bisque turned out good, but not great. I am going to try a different recipe next time!
