Cuban shrimp mojo with lime-roasted vegetables
Gluten-Free Friendly, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo, <600 Calories, Protein Plus
2 Servings, 570 Calories/Serving
Spanish for “sauce,” a traditional mojo has citrus for tang, ground cumin for spice, garlic for pungency, and more. No wonder it plays so many roles: as a marinade, baste, or dip, on everything from these succulent shrimp to the pork sandwiches you might find in Havana paladares, small restaurants often run from someone’s home.
