Authentic recipe for the typical spicy red sauce of the Canary Islands

In previous posts we have talked about the delightments of Canarian cuisine, a perfect reason to visit this paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

On this occasion we want you to become a chef and teach you how to make the most famous sauce from the Canary Islands from home. This spicy red sauce is known as ‘Mojo Rojo‘, and it is widely used in dishes such as wrinkled potatoes, blanched toasted meal on white, cured, and semi-cured cheese, and also with seafood.

How to prepare the red hot sauce or ‘Red Mojo’

Start grinding 6 cloves of garlic, with half a teaspoon of cumin and a pinch of salt. Add a half of hot pepper and continue grinding. Then add a little paprika, oil and vinegar (three parts of oil for one of vinegar), until you reach the right consistency. Stir it well and enjoy!

In addition to cheese and wrinkled potatoes, mojo is an excellent companion for different many types of meat, or even as a snack with bread. We want to see how you combine it!
