1/2 cup olive oil
8 cloves garlic, large, cut into paper thin slices or finely chopped
2/3 cup orange juice, fresh and sour or 1/2 cup fresh lime juice plus 3 tablespoons fresh regular orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
1 teaspoon oregano, dried
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped fresh or Italian (flat-leaf) parsley


1. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and pale golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Do not let brown too much, or the garlic will become bitter.

2. Stir in the sour orange juice, water, cumin, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Stand back the sauce may sputter. Bring the sauce to a rolling boil. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper. Let cool to room temperature, then stir in the cilantro. Transfer the mojo to a jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Serve in the jar and shake well before serving.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups
