Okay, well they aren't really eggs from fish, but they are eggs that are molded into a fish shape. You can buy the molds online at allthingsforsale.com or a multitude of other places. The trick is to boil the eggs, peel them while they're hot, and place them in the molds while still hot. I like my eggs medium boiled where it's all solid, but the yolk doesn't turn green. I put the pot of water on to boil. While it's heating, I prick a hole in the bottom of each egg. Once the water comes to a boil, I place the eggs in the water and set the time for 9 minutes and 30 seconds. When the timer goes off, I rinse the eggs in cold water briefly. I lightly crack the egg by tapping all sides against the counter and then peeling the shell from the egg. Place an egg in a mold, and either place it in the fridge or an ice bath. My son thinks these rock...as you can see. You can trim the edges to make it look cleaner, but I didn't bother this morning. He is looking forward to finding the car shape in his lunch next week.
