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!

Lovely tasty dish. I would add that bearing in mind that the recommended measurements per person for pasta is 75g, I think 400g is way too much for this dish.
