Combine ground beef, shrimp, dill, sea salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties about 1 inch thick.
Place burger patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 18 to 23 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers register 160 degree F, turning burgers once halfway through grilling.
Toast rolls on grill, if desired; serve burgers on rolls. Top with some of the Spicy Caramelized Mayo, and, if desired, lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and sweet pickle slices. Makes 4 burgers.
Make the Spicy Caramelized Mayo up to 3 days ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Test Kitchen Tip:
The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef patty cooked to 160°F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
