Puffins are great bird for cooking. They are incredibly hardy and can be made into an excellent meal in a variety of ways, but they are best if boiled and skinned. If you have the time, try a more traditional method of frying them in bacon fat. Alternatively, you could boil them with milk and water for an easy and tasty meal. A simple way to cook puffins is to truss them, remove the breasts and stuff them tightly in a pot with boiling milk.
