Prawn (Shrimp) Sushi Burger

Introduction: Prawn (Shrimp) Sushi Burger

I first had the idea for this a while ago after seeing an advert for a sushi chain that was trying to expand in to making burgers, it struck me as a limitless idea that anything can be a burger as long as it has two "bun" like items above and below it and is circular. Anyway this was my first attempt at making a "sushi burger".  I used only ingredients that i thought would go in sushi but i tried to alter them so that they fitted more easily to the burger setting for example, the mayonnaise that i used contained Chinese five spice and rice wine vinegar. i didn't add any items that you would typically find in a burger (like ketchup, gherkins or lettuce)  but I "created" their sushi equivalent. 

It should be noted that where as this looks amazing and tastes amazing, it was not easy to make and this is mainly because   almost all of it had to be made from scratch as stores typically don't stock it.  

But if your up for giving it a crack then the best of luck and tell me your thoughts.
