Chraime (Arabic: حرايمي‎, Hebrew: חריימה) is a dish of fish in spicy tomato sauce which originates from the Mizrahi/Sephardi Jewish communities of the Maghreb, particularly Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. Chraime is traditionally eaten on Erev Shabbat as well as on Rosh Hashanah and Passover for the Seder.[1][2][3] Maghrebi-Jewish immigrants have popularized the dish in Israel.
