“Mojo is a type of sauce; different versions are served all over the Spanish-speaking world. This one comes from the Canary Islands of Spain, where no table would be complete without a bowl of mojo on it. Mojo is eaten on everything and at every meal and is the perfect complement to grilled fish and egg dishes. The consistency and pungency can be adjusted to you liking, and the sauce varies from place to place, but the basis is always peppers, both sweet and pungent. This is a very simple recipe, easy enough for the beginner cook. From Eating Well.”
