Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. Bring out the beads, because this cajun-style inspired blackened salmon dish is what you want on your table for this years Mardi Gras party!!! I've taken my favorite blackened salmon recipe to new levels of taste sensation by using Hidden Valley Original Dip Mix to both season the salmon and brighten-up the sauce! Sweet corn and grape tomatoes provide the perfect sweetness to balance the very spicy salmon and sauce mix. It's zippy, zesty, spicy and oh-so-flavorful and ready to serve in 40 minutes! Double the batch… because they'll be back for more!
