Mr. Mojo Risin

If the grilling game gets dicy, look to Sweet Orange Mojo-Rum Sauce to perk up a variety of smokin’ specialties. Chicken & pork get a sweet deal with a spicy kick when slathered with this flavorful quick sauce. Fresh lime juice adds just the right of pep to score big on the plate for loads of good taste without heaps of effort. Make certain this No. 1 contender has an invitation to your Iron Bowl gathering.

makes 2/3 cup

Run The Option

Substitute the rum with a bold southern player. Moonshine adds Mason-Dixon bite to this sweet sauce.

1 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/4 cup rum
3/4 cup orange marmalade
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 crushed red pepper flakes 
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano 
1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Sauté the garlic in hot oil in a 2-quart saucepan over Medium-High heat 30 seconds or until fragrant. Remove the pan from the heat & deglaze with the rum. Place the pan back over the heat & stir in the marmalade, the lime juice & the crushed red pepper flakes. Reduce the heat to Medium-Low. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally & cook 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the oregano & the cilantro. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

Use as a flavorful dipping sauce to accompany a traditional Cuban-style sandwich. The sauce is equally tasty brushed over grilled chicken.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lime zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to sauces.
Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
