Cuban-style mojo is one of a number of loosely related sauces and marinades that play significant roles in Hispanic and Caribbean cuisines. These sauces share the use of oil, spice and acidic (usually citrus juice or vinegar) ingredients, although the specific combinations are unique to each culture. The classic Cuban style of mojo balances sweet garlic and onion flavors with the spicy heat of chiles and the sharp, almost bitter citrus flavors of Seville oranges, and often contains oregano or other herbs alongside a bit of cooking oil (sometimes olive oil, but any neutral cooking oil) to tie the flavors of the sauce together. It is frequently served as a condiment for fried starchy vegetables like plantains and yucca, or used as a marinade for pork.
