Cuban-Style Mojo (pronounced “MO-ho”) is one of a number of loosely related sauces and marinades that play significant roles in Hispanic and Caribbean cuisines. These sauces share the use of oil, spice and acidic (usually citrus juice or vinegar) ingredients, although the specific combinations are unique to each culture. The meaning of the word “mojo,” used as a name for these sauces, is often traced back to the Spanish word “mojar,” a verb meaning to make wet, or sometimes to the Portuguese word “molho,” which means sauce.

It has a rich, complex flavor that balances savory, sweet, and spicy with a hint of habanero chile powder. Orange peel and lime juice powder recreate the bittersweet taste of Seville orange juice.
