This is the sauce, the Mojo Sauce.

Where I come from, that would be – Canary Islands, we have a special sauce which we pretty much enjoy with everything. I would like to share this with you.

  • 150ml olive oil
  • 20ml vinegar
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 2 cayene chilli – optional to make spicy
  • 1 big red pepper (remove the seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet chilli powder (paprika powder – mostly for color)
  • 1 teaspoon powder cumin (jeera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

BLEND IT.

For thicker texture – pan fry bread and blend it in with the sauce.

When making the sauce, I realized there was an oily taste to it. This could be possibly due to the olive oil being too strong, to counter act the taste, I added 3 teaspoons of tomate puree.
