Donburi is rice with some topping in a bowl. Typical toppings are chicken and egg (Oyakodon), Tempura (Tendon), or beef (Gyudon). It’s a complete meal in a bowl.
The topping, however, can be anything you like, really. I had leftover baked salmon from dinner the night before, so it was recycled into this dish. And I have to say, salmon still made a pretty good Donburi.
