First, what the book says about the sauce: Mojo - pronounced Mo-ho - is Cubas national table sauce. To be strictly authentic, youd use the acid juice of the sour orange (naranja agria), a fruit that looks like a green bumpy orange but that tastes more like a lime. Sour oranges can be found at Hispanic markets. Fresh lime juice makes an acceptable substitute. Serve mojo on Cuban sandwiches, boiled yuca, grilled seafood and meats, and just about anything else. 1. Heat the olive oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly toasted but not brown, about 30 seconds. 2. Add the sour orange juice, cumin, and salt and pepper. Stand back: The sauce may sputter. Bring the sauce to a rolling boil. Correct the seasonings, adding salt and pepper to taste. 3. Cool before serving. Mojo tastes best when served within a couple of hours of making, but it will keep for several days, covered, in the refrigerator. Recipe is from _Miami Spice_ by Steven Raichlen.
