Chraime (Arabic: حرايميharaime, Hebrew: חריימה‎) is a spicy fish stew with tomatoes from the Libya. The name of the dish comes from the Arabic word for "hot".[1]

Chraime is traditionally eaten by Jews on Erev Shabbat as well as on Rosh Hashanah and Passover for the Seder.[2][3][4] Libyan-Jewish immigrants have popularized the dish in Israel.
