Mojo (garlic cirtrus sauce)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Olive oil
6 eaches To 8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
⅔ cup Fresh sour orange juice or lime juice
½ teaspoon Ground cumin
\N \N Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Note: Sour orange juice can be found in Latino markets. 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. 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. 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. (The name means Moors and Christians, a reference to the North Africans who once dominated Spain. This traditional dish is a peaceful co-mingling of textures. To eat it, ladle the cooked beans over a bed of fluffy rice and garnish with chopped scallions.) MOJO
