The searing process will take you around 3 minutes. This means you will cook it for 90 seconds per side, turning the tuna only ONCE.
On the other hand, if you want it fully cooked - go for a medium well tuna steak which will take about 6 minutes total.
For a 1-inch thick tuna, it may take up to 8 - 10 minutes total. As mentioned earlier, keep a close eye on your tuna while it’s on the grill.
Go for medium well as the heat from the tuna will continue the cooking process. After it’s removed from the grill, the heat will cook the middle part of the steak.

There isn’t a definite thickness but the minimum should be about 2 centimeters (slightly wider than your thumb).
If you want to sear a tuna steak, you should have a thicker cut (around 1 inch or more) to make sure it doesn’t turn overcooked during the grilling process.
