  1. Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. Rub or brush the steak on both sides with 1 tsp oil; season. Place in the hot pan and cook for 2½-3 mins each side for medium-rare. Transfer to a board, cover loosely with foil; leave to rest.
  2. Toss the lettuce wedges with the remaining oil; season well. Return the pan to the heat; when hot, add the lettuce and sear for 30 secs each side to lightly char. Transfer to a plate.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the mustard (if using). Split the baguette halves and spread the base of each with the mustard-mayo. Add the tomatoes, avocado and lettuce. Thinly slice the steak and arrange on top. Scatter over the capers and sandwich together.
