  1. Place the avocados, onion, tomato, garlic and coriander into a mixing bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon cumin, 2 teaspoons crushed chillies, lime juice and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir gently until evenly combined; set aside.
  2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate. Combine the sea salt, 2 tablespoons cumin, 1 teaspoon crushed chillies, coriander, chilli powder and cinnamon in a bowl; set aside.
  3. Dry the steak with kitchen towels and rub the spice mixture onto both sides. Cook on the preheated barbecue until the steak starts to firm and is reddish-pink and juicy in the centre, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 54 degrees C. Remove the steak from the barbecue, cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Arrange onto a serving plate and top with salsa to serve.
