This recipe has been named for it’s maker . . . Anthony, my Father. His birth name was really Gaetano Antonio. However, once he started school, in 1915, they “Americanized” it, like they did for so many children, to Anthony Guy! This is his recipe. Where he got it and from whom is lost in his memory, so we call it like it is, Shrimp Anthony Guy or Gamberetto Antonio Gaetano!
