Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, toss the cucumber with 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, and a couple of pinches of salt. Let rest until softened.
Remove the salmon from the packaging, cut it into 3 pieces, pat dry with paper towels, and season on both sides with salt. In a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add the salmon, skin-side down, and sear until crispy and cooked to your liking, 2 to 3 minutes per side for rare. Transfer to a plate and brush with the teriyaki glaze, coating completely.
Reheat the rice in the microwave until steamed through and warm, 1 to 2 minutes or according to package instructions. Peel, pit, and dice the avocado. Slice the green onions.
Heap the rice in bowls and top with the teriyaki salmon, marinated cucumber, and diced avocado. Sprinkle with the green onions and togarashi and serve warm.
