For the Sauce: 3 tablespoons light soy sauce, 6 tablespoons vinegar, 1 small onion (diced), 1 clove garlic( minced) and a dash of pepper. Combine everything in a bowl and set aside.
For the batter: 1 cup flour, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 egg, 1/4 tsp cayenne(optional) and 3/4 cup water (pour water a little at a time so you will not have a very thin batter).
Add batter to the sprout mixture. Heat 1/4 inch oil in skillet over medium heat. Fry fritters until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Spoon sauce over fritters. THEN, SAVOUR YOUR FIRST BITE!!
