  1. If using the oven, preheat to 400 degrees F. On the BBQ set one side to high, and the other side off.
  2. Start with the sweet potatoes in the oven or on the grill. Cook until slightly soft to the touch, about 20 minutes.
  3. Place the salmon on a cedar plank or baking sheet and into the oven for 15 minutes or on the side of the grill that is off and close the lid for 15 to 20 minutes. The fish is cooked when it easily flakes apart.
  4. For the soup, in a large pot over medium heat add oil. Once it begins to shimmer, it’s hot enough to add the garlic, ginger and onions. Cook for about 3 minutes until fragrant and lightly browned.
  5. Stir in the Red Curry Paste. Add all your stock.
  6. Roughly chop up the sweet potato and add them along with the kale/greens. Bring up to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
  7. Flake in the salmon and season to taste
  8. Finish with fresh lime juice, green onion and lots of fresh herbs.
