I love good sushi, I really do.  There are virtually endless flavor combinations that explode with flavor in one glorious bite. That being said, rolling sushi is definitely a skill that I definitely do not have!  That's what inspired me to create my Papa's Pepper Shrimp Sushi Stack.  It's got all the flavor and texture without having to roll a thing!

For the shrimp:
1-2 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp
2T Lemon juice
1T butter

For the Yum-yum sauce:
2C Mayonnaise
3T Sugar
2T Mirin
2T Tomato paste
1&1/2t Granulated garlic
1t Onion powder
1t Salt
2-3T Heavy cream
2T Butter, melted
2t Papa's Pepper premium spice blend

Additional ingredients:

2 Avocados, halved, peeled and cut into thin slices
1 Cucumber, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
1 pound rice of your choice, cooked and cooled
1C Panko bread crumbs

Combined all ingredients for Yum-yum sauce except heavy cream.  Add 2-3T heavy cream until sauce is the consistency you want.  Combined sauce with cooled rice and set aside.  Add butter and lemon juice to sauté pan over medium-high heat and cook shrimp until pink and just cooked through, 4-6 minutes. While the shrimp cooks lay cucumber slices on a plate in a round circle then sprinkle with kosher salt.  Lay a ring mold centered over cucumbers and fill with Yum-yum rice.  Generously sprinkle Panko bread crumbs on top of rice. Fan out avocado slices on a cutting board and form into a circle and using a large turner or board scraper transfer on top of Yum-yum rice.  Fill center of avocado with cooked shrimp.  Add fresh ground black pepper and salt to taste.  Remove ring mold and serve!
