While visiting Gran Canaria, it is simply impossible not to get hooked on the queso a la plancha, or Canarian grilled cheese. Unlike the ubiquitous sandwiches we associate with kids’ lunches in the USA, grilled cheese in the Canary Islands is comprised of a semi-soft goat’s milk cheese that is seared on both sizes and subsequently drizzled with spicy mojo sauce or honey. Gran Canaria’s most famous dish is papas arrugadas con mojo, or wrinkled potatoes with a spicy mojo sauce. This popular plate is made of small Canarian potatoes, which are usually cooked in saltwater and sprinkled with a generous dose of sea salt. They are then served with a pungent sauce made of cumin, garlic, paprika, olive oil, vinegar and salt. The red mojo picón is made with dried red peppers, while the milder green mojo verde is typically made with parsley or cilantro.
