Scroll down past the recipe for the answer.

The most well known alternatives for Shabbat fish dishes I listen to about are salmon, gefilte fish, and sushi. Swimming towards the tide, I have been seeking out unique spending budget-helpful sole recipes. Like most flat white fish, sole does not have a robust flavor of its own. That tends to make it the best base for enjoyable herbs and seasonings. This lemon-veggie baked sole is infused with flavor from the lemons and scallions, but it is continue to light. It is not covered in sauce, so it can be heated on Shabbat. It’s best for a summer season seudah shlishit or weeknight supper.

So what do ladybugs have to do with sole?

A: They are both named immediately after Moses.
The 7-noticed ladybug is typically known as פרת משה רבנו (Parat Moshe Rabeinu, i.e. Moses’ cow) in Hebrew.  The ladybug typically obtained nicknames in a selection of European languages relating to different divine deities, probable because of its ability to get rid of mites and aphids. The Hebrew is a translation of the Yiddish variant, relating the very little purple bug to Moshe. Why a cow? I have not noticed an answer to that however. If you know 1, comment below!
I just figured out currently that sole is nicknamed in Hebrew דג משה רבינו (dahg Moshe Rabeinu, i.e. Moses fish). According to the people tale, Moshe stepped on the fish whilst crossing the Pink Sea, which is why it is so flat.
