Hello, Northamerica1000 -- I don't know about "corned" with salmon, but your version sounds better anyway. However, I've got to ask you whether you really meant to leave the sentence this way:

  • In 1830 an English baked dish made with salmon blended and potato was called a chowder.

"With salmon blended and potato"? Wouldn't this make more sense if it said "salmon blended with potato"? If so, then, to avoid two "with's", perhaps change the first one to "from" or "of":

  • In 1830 an English baked dish made from salmon blended with potato was called a chowder.
  • In 1830 an English baked dish made of salmon blended with potato was called a chowder.

If not, then I don't know what kind of dish this is. Corinne (talk) 02:42, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi Corinne – Actually, I prefer the present content in the article, " In 1830 an English baked dish made with salmon and potato was called a chowder." (diff). I don't think the "blended" part is particularly necessary in the article. North America1000 02:46, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sorry. I had been away from editing for a few days, and I forgot that when a word is highlighted in salmon, it means that word has been removed. Of course it reads fine now. Sorry about that. Corinne (talk) 02:58, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
  • @Corinne: It's all good, and thanks for your concern. North America1000 03:03, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
The word "salmon" is highlighted in salmon? No wonder I'm so confused. Face-wink.svg Mudwater (Talk) 03:11, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
