KGT 100:  if a dish comes with a sauce, it is appropriate to use as much or as little sauce as one desires.

On the IKV Rotarran, Ch'Targ poured almost an entire bottle of *grapok* sauce onto Alexander's *bregit* lung, saying that it "brings out the flavor." (DS9 "Soldiers of the Empire")

Apparently the *trigak*, a predatory animal with sharp teeth, also goes nicely with {gha'poq}. (KRAD: Honor Bound, A Good Day to Die, et al.)

Related vocabulary:

uSu'			sauce for {tlhatlh} (gladst) 
ghevI' 		sauce for {qagh} (gagh)
qettlhup		an all-purpose sauce

chanDoq		marinade (n)
Se'tu' 		saucepan (n)
