Mover the contents of the blender into a pot 3 qt or larger. Bring to a boil stirring the whole time.

How do you portion out the food? Just scoop it? Would it be easier to use something like an ice cube tray for pre-portioned amounts?

It makes quite a large amount. I chip away what I use for the week, and then leave the rest in the freezer. Preportioning doesn't always work because you may need to cut off only the amount the fish are willing to eat.
