Another of the many versions of mojo typical in the Canary Islands...This goes well with fish, potatoes, bread, and any kind of meat...use as a condiment or a marinade.

Terribly wonderful, I was eating it with a spoon it was so good. I loved your regular mojo, thought NOTHING could be better. This is fabulous on pan fried tilapia or baked catfish. I used a habanero instead of green pepper.

Great recipe! I made it exactly as the recipe described and it went perfectly with my papas arrugadas. With my later batches, I substituted the red wine vinegar for sherry and browned half of the garlic..and with the sherry, as you mentioned, I did it to taste. Now if I can just find a good recipe for ropa vieja..
