I adapted this recipe from a mixed tempura donburi, substituting fresh shrimp and tofu without the tempura batter. The result is a healthier, and still very tasty, dish that our whole family really enjoys. You can use chicken or salmon in place of the shrimp, and it is equally delicious! Donburi's are wonderful cold weather food. The combination of warm rice, egg, and sweet and salty sauce is just irresistible.
