Cook undisturbed for 1 minute, then flip and cook 1 minute more (the tuna should be rare to medium-rare – but cook it according to your taste). Transfer the tuna to a cutting board, and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing across the grain.
  4. Assemble the bowls: Divide the rice, seared tuna, radish, green onion, nori, cucumber, avocado, and sesame seeds evenly between two bowls. Drizzle the dressing over the top, and garnish with pickled ginger.
