Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, ginger, and garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Mix in 1 tablespoon Jamaican Jerk spice, cayenne pepper, and salt and continue cooking until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the rice, lentils, and carrot. Simmer on low heat until thick, about 6 minutes. Pour mixture into a bowl and add breadcrumbs, parsley, and lime juice. Mash together and then shape into four patties.
Heat a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Saute patties for 3 minutes on each side. While patties are cooking, mix the mayonnaise and the remaining tablespoon Jamaican Jerk spice. Place each patty on top of a slice of bread. Spread a quarter of the mayonnaise mixture on the remaining slices of bread and place on top of patties.
