As you know in June, I did 30 days of eating fresh foods. I admit I never felt better. It a good change I did and I am proud of the results. I have energy and I lost weight which was a great bonus. Even though it now July, I think I am going to stick with the fresh foods for the most part. I really do love how I am looking and feeling. It was a good I decided to do that challenge.

So you know I really do not like beer to drink. When I made the Gorgonzola Guinness Bacon Dip I had to buy a huge bottle of Guinness. Since I do not drink beer, I had to figure out how to use it up. I like cooking with it, just not drinking it. What can I say? I am a margarita type of gal.

Anyway, I originally thought maybe a Guinness glaze on salmon, but changed my mind and thought of shrimp. I had some asparagus tips, onions, and mushrooms, and thought, this would make for a nice meal. It turned out so fabulous!

    I am gluten intolerant and am very worried that this recipe is being described as gluten free when it has Guiness and Worcestershire sauce in it!!!
    Unless you are using gluten free Guinness and Worcestershire sauce which you haven’t stated???
    I have gluten free Worcestershire sauce, where have you found gluten free guiness please?
