The Lab: Seared Tuna with Chèvre-Miso Ramen

Last Friday afternoon, my mind went off on a tangent again and this time, I felt like I wanted to do something with tuna. After work, I made a short trip to the grocery store for some ingredients. I debated on using udon or ramen, but opted for ramen again. I wanted to do some yogurt and miso based dressing for the noodles with some added kick and creativity to it.

I was prepared to have some customers for this dish, but when I got home, I found myself all alone, which was great, so I could make everything in small quantities. The recipe below serves one person.
