Add a little mojo to your next meal! Mojo Picón is a medium spicy sauce only found on the Canary Islands. Much more than a simple hot sauce, it has a full rich flavor and is made with Palmera peppers, garlic and cumin. This Ayanto sauce is the most authentic we’ve tried, made in small batches. Serve with grilled meats and roasted vegetables.
Mojo is legendary in the Canarias and is served with many Canary Island dishes. The first mojo came from Portuguese travelers who would stop for provisions before they sailed away to Latin America. The Portuguese word for sauce is ‘molho,’ which inspired the term mojo. Over the centuries, the Canary Islanders have adapted the sauce and made it their own.
Mojo is delicious with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, potatoes and seafood. Serve it with "patatas arrugadas" (small boiled potatoes with salt and lemon) for a taste of the Canary Islands.
The Ayanto sauce company is the dream of two young friends from the Islands, Agustín and Antonio. From the native Guanche word for midday feast, Ayanto sauces are an expression of the authentic cuisine of the Canary Islands. All natural ingredients and small batch production make this one of Spain’s finest sauces.
Palmera red pepper, sunflower oil, garlic, sea salt, cumin and vinegar.
