Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, spread Dijon mustard over the tuna steak on all sides.
Combine black and white sesame seeds on a shallow plate, then gently press the tuna steak into seeds to coat it on all sides.
Add the tuna to the hot skillet. Sear for about 1 minute per side. Use tongs to hold the edges to the skillet to “seal” all sides.
Transfer the tuna to a cutting board. Cut the fish lengthwise, then slice.
Add about an inch of hot water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the skillet. Place the asparagus in the water and cook for 3-4 minutes, until bright green. Transfer to a colander and run under cold water to stop the asparagus from cooking further. Pat dry and set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients, until smooth. Adjust salt to taste.
Divide the arugula among two serving bowls. Top with asparagus, avocado, and sliced tuna. Drizzle with dressing.
