There is nothing like some good Puerto Rican street food. Bacalaitos is easy to make and so darn good. I was always hunting down the food trucks to get these in my neighborhood , but now I know how to make them and can have them anytime I want. I wanted to make sure when making these that it was the traditional Puerto Rican way. I hope you try and enjoy these.
