marinated / pickled roe


Explanation:
Could we be talking about fish products, here, perhaps? "raves --roe"


Product categories; Lumpfish roe, capelin roe, cod roe, haddock roe, saithe roe, seafood spreads in tubes, fish roe pastes, smoked, frozen, salted and marinated roe.

Caviar could start disappearing from smart restaurants after a sharp
drop in the numbers of sturgeon, whose pickled roe
constitute the world's favourite delicacy.

Parmi les sous-entrées des avis traitant des produits de la pêche, il faut bien distinguer les termes non retenus des termes à éviter. Les termes non retenus sont d'abord des termes en usage ou officialisés en France, mais qu'on n'emploie pas au Québec parce que les réalités sont différentes, ou pour des raisons culturelles ou économiques. ((...)) Les termes non retenus désignent ensuite des synonymes non normalisés, puis enfin, dans un tout autre ordre d'idées, des termes à éviter (anglicismes, expressions impropres, noms étrangers, etc.).
