    should be singular or plural

    Teachers,

    At a restaurant, requesting things like below for the dish that you've just ordered, should the word "sauce" / "spice" be singular or plural?

    Please tell the chef to go easy on the spice/spices.

    Thank you.

    singular.
    But I wouldn't send this type of order out to a real chef.
