Vietnamese Seared Fish with Ginger Lime Sauce

I was absolutely amazed by the burst of flavor in each bite of this dish. A light, lovely seared fish with the crunch of julienne cucumber and the awesome ginger lime sauce. I served these in single spoon servings as an amuse-bouche, with steamed white rice as a base.
