I am just trying to refer to making of a dish. the dish needs to have "as much as salt to affect the taster's palate". is there any better way to express this? thanks

    Your phrase seems strange to me, sadboy. If I understand what you're trying to express, I'd probably say "the dish needs to have enough salt so that people can taste it."

    In recipes they usually say add salt to taste. You use your own sense of taste to judge how much you need. Everyone has a different idea of how much salt to use.

    well, I will try to explain it better.
    This is something prepared for winter. And the instruction says too much salt must be added. As much as to "burn" the taster's mouth if I may say so.

    You may certainly say that, sadboy. And you probably should write it that way: Add so much salt to the dish that it burns the taster's mouth.
