Mail Order Puffin?

My boyfriend is crazy about Iceland and he regrets not having tried puffin while he was there. Yes, they are the very cute birds, and a local delicacy. Does anyone know if puffin could be mail ordered for a special birthday surprise? I would also appreciate recipes and any input anyone could give who might have tried it either there or at home.

We have puffins in Canada but I'm pretty sure they're a protected species. You'd have to order them from Iceland if they're even available.

Buuuut, I think you should remind your boyfriend that it's just weird to eat black & white animals.... killer whales, penguins, puffins, zebras, pandas, skunks..... notice nobody eats these things? :huh:

Puffins are protected by Federal law in the U.S. See the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's list here. Consequently, puffins (or parts of puffins) may not be imported legally into the U.S.
