Chraime is a traditional Moroccan dish of fish cooked in tomato based sauce. It’s spicy and has a dominant taste of cilantro which I love. Although I had no fish (minor detail right?), I used the shrimps I had in my freezer. The result was a delicious shrimp dish with strong Mediterranean flavor. Of course I immediately served it with a big piece of bread to dip in the sauce. I didn’t make it spicy this time because I wanted the kids to enjoy it as well however, in the recipe below you’ll have the option to make it spicy. Either way, it turns out fabulous.
