READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

This sauce is from the Canary Islands. this green, herb-flavored variation of Mojo Rojo (see recipe I posted) is good on almost anything and especially good with seafood. Very simple recipe (for begginner cooks). From Eating Well.

A winner as they say! Fresh, healthy, spicy and as a bonus easy to make. Served the mojo with fried fish, boiled new potatoes and a salad, we had a great meal! The only thing I did different was that I used less green pepper, so the version I made was probably a bit spicier. Have some left over and I can see there will be a tomato/mojo sandwich for lunch tomorrow!
