Wasakaka is a savory sauce found in Dominican & Venezuelan cuisine often on chicken. In Venezuela the sauce is made from avocadoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, lime juice or vinegar, cilantro, parsley, green bell peppers, onions, worcestershire sauce, garlic, and chili peppers. Cuban mojo, and the Chilean pebre share the same ingredients.[1] The name is also spelled guasacaca, pronounced the same.[2] In the Dominican Republic the sauce is made with lime or sour orange juice, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and olive oil.
