Mojo sauce (“moh-ho”) is the name of a variety of sauces that originated in the Canary Islands. Originally it was an olive oil based sauce with garlic, paprika,coriander leaf and lemon, orange and lime juices. The sauce, which emigrated with its people to the Caribbean, was adopted by Cubans and was made their own.It’s so versatile that it can be used on anything from marinating pork to making delicious dipping sauces. Give this "Cuban fusion" pasta a try!

Excellent Xx

Simple and delicious

Mahiyar - Dec 08, 2018

This dish is fully deserving of all its rave reviews! We used a bit of both tenderstem broccoli and asparagus, which provided a nice crunchiness to a delicious and pleasantly piquant dish. And so quick and easy to make too!

Louise - Dec 08, 2018

One if my favourites

Sharon - Dec 08, 2018

Absolutely fab. Just the right amount of spices I used broccoli but next time I would use asparagus

Sue - Dec 07, 2018

Lovely light meal. I added more tomatoes, asparagus and broccoli. Very tasty with a bit of a bite. We really enjoyed this one and I’m going to try a vegan variation for Boxing Day visitors.

Swapped prawns for chicken as dont like prawns so would normally have removed it but forgot to check. It was nice

Paul - Nov 21, 2018

Another excellent dish. Substituted yogurt for cream & used tender stem broccoli which worked well al dente. Not sure about linguine - spaghetti would have been better?
