Mojo Glaze Recipe

Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Total Time15 minutes
Course: Sauces
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 - 6 servings


  • 4 tablespoons red onion minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup orange marmalade Seville if you can find it
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chives minced


  • Heat a saute pan over medium heat until hot, add oil and when hot, add the onions. Cook for 1 minute and then add the garlic and cook for an additional minute or two.
  • Be sure to keep stirring with a wooden spoon so the garlic doesn't burn. If you burn the garlic, toss and start over again. Burnt garlic does not do anything for this sauce.
  • Add the marmalade and lime juice, stir and bring to a simmer. Let this cook down until the glaze begins to thicken and can coat the back of a metal spoon.
  • As soon as the glaze reaches the desired consistency, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the minced chives.
  • The glaze is ready to serve over pork, chicken, beef or vegetables.


This is a good one and it's quick and easy to make at home.
