Chraime is a spicy fish stew with tomatoes. The name of the dish comes from the Arabic word “spicy/hot” and is a popular Jewish recipe of Sephardic cuisine prepared for Sabbath and Pesach. This is a quick, easy and tasty dish. The spiciness can be adjusted.

Preparation method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add onion, pepper, garlic and fry while stirring, for approx. 10-15 minutes. Add sweet and smoked paprika, cumin, turmeric, paprika flakes and fry for approx. 1 minute. Mix with tomatoes, 1¼ cup of water, tomato paste, sugar, bay leaf, salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for approx. 5 minutes. Season to taste.

Step 2

Dip the fish fillets in the sauce. Cover and simmer for approx. 20 minutes.

Step 3

Take the pan off the heat, get rid of the bay leaf and serve directly from the pan (or put the fillets to a platter and pour the sauce over them), with lemon wedges and sprinkled with coriander.

Bon appetit!
