Season the cod and prawns and place in a litle cold water, drain well and finely chop.  In a bowl, mix together the cod and prawns, garlic, capers, dill and english mustard.  Put the mixture into a food processor and blend until combined.  Form the mix into four large burgers, cover with cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for an hour.  Heat a small amount of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat.  Remove the burgers from the fridge and gently fry them in a pan for four to six minutes until they are cooked through.  Turn the burger a few times while cooking.  For the herb mayonnaise mix the tarragon, parsley and egg yolks in a bowl.  Add the white wine vinegar and mustard and mix.  While whisking, slowly pour in the oil and mix until the mayonnaise thickens and emulsifies.  Toast the burger buns and layer lettuce,tomato and onion with some of the mayonnaise.  Add the burgers and serve with salad or chips.
