Tuna Steak (Temp and Time)

Just bought some fresh Tuna Steaks and am looking for some advice on cooking them.

I understand that I should sear them at 600 degrees, correct?

If so, for how long?

Thanks for the help.

    Greg, this sounds great! I was hoping to read that it was a fresh catch by you and your son this morning.. :)
    Do you eat your Tuna just seared or cooked thru?...not that I have an answer for you on temp/time, just curious.

    As hot and fast as you can. Here's how I do it: Tuna Steaks

    Grill the steaks for 30 seconds a side, flip and check. You're shooting for medium-rare where the tuna will gently yield to the touch.

    tuna depends on egg temp and thickness. i watch the gray line form and we like raw meat. center of below pic was 80° thermopen


    this was thinner tuna same gray line but closer to 100° in the center.

    I would like to have a seared Tuna Steak.

    Looking forward to making this on the EGG, as I have never made tuna, although it is not the product of a catch made by me. :)

  • Did 2 at 650 for 30 secs. each side. They were gray with a little sear on the outside and raw and cool in the center. Yummy. I used to kill Tuna. Not any more. Steaks were the pre-paackaged ones from Trader Joes. Should be pretty uniform in size and thickenss.
