Bacalaitos

Updated: Jul 23, 2022

CodFish Fritters


Bacalaitos are very well know in our Island of Puerto Rico. They are served as snacks, and everyone has very different ways to make them. They are delicious and once you eat one you are going to want more.


You will find them at the beach, Festivals, and cuchifrito restaurants where you will find Alcapurrias, Papa Rellenas, Morcillas, chicharrón, Fried Plantains, and many more snacks, appetizers, and natural juices.


I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it, especially if you love Codfish.
