Mojo (pronounced mo-ho) is the Spanish name for a number of Latin sauces made with vinegar or citrus juice and garlic. It is a traditional accompaniment to the starchy root vegetables of the Hispanic Caribbean.
Healthy Grilling Recipes
12 small garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh bitter-orange juice or lime juice (see Note)
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
How to Make It
In a mini food processor or blender, pulse the garlic with a generous pinch of salt until finely chopped. Blend in the bitter-orange juice and cumin and process until fine, about 30 seconds. With the machine on, slowly add the oil in a thin stream until the mojo is emulsified. Season the mojo with pepper and serve immediately.
Bitter oranges, also called Seville oranges, are extremely tart. They are available at Latin markets.
