Mojo (Cuban)

The Cuban version of Mojo Sauce is made from olive oil, bitter orange juice and garlic.

It can be used as a marinade, a dip or a sauce.

As a marinade, it is used on pork, chicken, lamb, or goat. Most recipes ask you to marinate whatever meat you are marinating in Mojo Sauce for 4 hours.

"Mojo Criollo" adds dried oregano.

American take-off versions include mango-ginger Mojo, and sun dried tomato Mojo.

You can buy both traditional and fusion-food versions ready-made in bottles.


For the bitter orange juice, equal portions of freshly-squeezed orange juice and freshly-squeezed lime juice.

Language Notes

Pronounced "mo ho."

    St Patrick's Day is a day to celebrate all things Irish. As a major festival, it was big first in America before it was in Ireland -- just as Cinco de Mayo is coming to be a bigger deal now in America than it is in Mexico.
