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!

Just cooked this dish, which I have to say that I am amazed at the delicious flavours it has. So easy to cook, I do not cook regularly but really enjoyed the simple instructions and it came out great. Would recommend and we will certainly have this again.

Andrew - Nov 30, 2019

First time for this one..and LOVED it. Really good flavours, a light dish and reasonably healthy. The aspargus worked perfectly, and like someone's suggestion to add peas. Not sure how Cuban it tasted, but highly recommended.

Chris - Nov 28, 2019

Lovely flavours and really easy to cook. This would make a great light lunch on a summer afternoon. Really light but also filling. Will definitely order again.
