Oysters Mosca

Mosca’s, an unpretentious New Orleans institution since 1946, is a Louisiana Creole Italian restaurant in a remote area of the city. Mosca’s offers an adventure in eating and is not for the feint of heart or for those that may require gluten free or fat free diets. Robust Italian flavors permeate the oysters and shrimp Mosca, the chicken a la Grande and the marinated crabs. This recipe is my family’s adaptation and interpretation of the garlicky baked oyster dish. Jane and Michael Stern, in their book,”Roadfood,” described oysters Mosca as a “festival of garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.” We love to serve Oysters Mosca as a side with turkey or roasted pork on Thanksgiving. Get festive and bake some oysters Mosca style.
