How to cook a pouched egg in microwave (without, hopefully, blowing it)

Pouched eggs are yammy, but a bit tricky to make. Egg and microwave oven does not mix : this is a well known. But there are a trick from molecular gastronomy: just add water and PUNCH HOLE IN EGG YOLK (this is very important, otherwise egg will still EXPLODE!). It did not blow for me with just 2 holes made with skewer and took 1 min 30 seconds to cook.

It may still be DANGEROUS! I personally do not trust microwave oven.

This is a finished product. It tasted good with pesto sauce!
