Spam Bittermelon with Tofu Donburi (Bowl)

This recipe is a take on a much liked Okinawan dish called Goya Champuru.  A popular dish of bitter melon and egg.  Served typically “donburi-style” in a bowl over hot steamed rice. I love this dish for the bitter, spicy, sweet flavors. I have made this dish, substituting a combination of seafood (imitation crab, bay shrimp and scallops) for the Spam.
