The roe of some fish is a delicacy. caviar is the outstanding example. Other luxury products are boutargue and taramosalata. However, humbler, unprocessed, roes can also be delicious and may constitute a dish in their own right, e.g. fried slices of cod roe, shad roe in the USA, and soft herring roes on toast in Europe. Finnish people are outstanding connoisseurs of fish roe, e.g. of salmon, whitefish, trout, and burbot.
