bought this sausage @ the local asian supermarket.

    I usually eat it raw with raw sliced garlic and thai bird chilis
    prefer the smaller sized sausages texturally
    never got sick off eating it raw

      My go-to expert for cuisine of that subregion has this to say about nam via Twitter:

      "Nam is made to be eaten raw. But it can be cooked w/o loss of the definitive sourness Texture changes, tho."

      About her personal preferences:

      "I like Nam in omelet and fried rice. Don't care too much for raw Nam, tho that's the state in which it's at its best."
