Yuca Frita Con Mojo

Country: Cuba

Notes: Yuca con mojo is a Cuban side dish made by marinating yuca root (also known as cassava) in garlic, lime, and olive oil. Often, onions are included in the marinade. Also known as one of Cuba’s national dishes it is most often served boiled. Our version is served fried giving it a crispy texture to the outside of the yuca. It is then coated in mojo sauce.

Preparation: Yuca is simmered in water until it is soft and then left to cool. The mojo is made by mixing garlic, oregano, olive oil and salt.
