    Ah! We had Som Tam with chicken back in February. Ubonwan and our friend kept saying "pok-pok" to me and I thought they were imitating the sound of a chicken!

    Naam is easy to make and really impressive to serve.

    Buy 250g of pork mince. Put it in a bowl, add 3/4 cloves of chopped garlic and 3/4 chopped hottest chillis. Mix for a few minutes. Press mixture down tight, cover the top in cling film and leave overnight in the fridge. By morning the chillis will have cooked the pork. Serve and eat.

    Jaocheu that dish would freak out an American crowd. When I eat it I have to hide from people because they always say 'Is that even cooked?' LOL

    Kala83 I really think the suggestion of Som Tum is a great one. You are looking for something in a presentation, and it is very colorful and attractive. It is different looking from what most Americans are used to seeing. It has a totally different texture than what Americans eat, and is chock-full of some fine chili warmth and goodness. The fish sauce and the pepper are two ingredients that stand out as the primary condiments and flavors in most Thai dishes. I personally think it is the ideal dish for a presentation.

    I personally like to add some extra crushed peanuts in mine. We eat it 3-4 times per week at home and it is so easy that often times my girls make it. It is almost a competition in my house, every time it is prepared they seem to compete with how good it was last time and usually tastes better and better every meal.

    just be careful with the number of chilis in som tam. untrained palates find the regular Thai amount.... killing. also, for many people, it causes mild diarrhea. (I thought I was the only one but I hear this complaint over and over from others now.) it's great food but you must be careful with it.

    The correct answer would be "no, it's raw", which is what the sod means in nam mu sod. Somebody correct me if this is wrong, but I think the Thai is แหนมหมูสด. There are chemical reactions when adding pepper or acidic foods like lime or lemon to meat, but it doesn't cook the meat in the same way heat does. If you make this, be sure you know the risks and are certain of the origin of the meat.

    I met a British guy in Isaan who was seriously into eating raw meat in Thailand and Laos, and was quite knowledgeable about the subject. We had some great talks about best practices, possible risks of things like salmonella and trichinosis, and he knew a lot about the most effective de-worming pills to buy in Southeast Asia. If you're not a little freaked out, then maybe you should be. This is not to say that you can't eat things like naam or larb ลาบ safely, but it does require being careful and knowing the potential dangers.
