Mojo (pronounced mo-ho, not mo-joe) is a classic Cuban seasoning sauce that is a wonderful marinade for meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables. A mojo is made of garlic, herbs, olive oil, and citrus, and there is no end to the variations. No Cuban meal would be complete without mojo. Here is my take on this delicious marinade/rub. SPECIAL NOTE: The citrus fruit of choice is Naranja Agria, or sour orange. You can find the bottled juice or even the fruit at specialty latin markets, (you can substitute the naranja agria juice with 2 parts lemon juice to 1 part orange juice).
