There are many, many recipes for Cuban-Style Mojo. Some use naranja agria (sour orange) or dried herbs. I like this particular recipe because it is so easy and tastes so fresh. This recipe is an adaptation of the mojo made by my grandmother, who is from a small town in the province of Pinar Del Rio, in western Cuba. I usually use this delicious sauce on top of boiled yuca and as a dipping sauce for fried yuca, fried malanga or fried green plaintains (tostones). But it is very versatile and can be used to dip other vegetables in, as a marinade or sauce for meat, fish or chicken, or even mixed into a side dish of rice..
