How does the conditional + 一緒 structure work?

This person ate a raw prawn and was then berated by his friends in the following exchange.

「さ、さすがに生は……どうかと思うぞ」

「残酷な食べ方ね」

「残酷も何も……口に入れれば一緒だと思うんだけどな」

This is not a special grammar pattern. This 一緒 means "the same" or "makes no difference" rather than "together". See the third definition here.

口に入れれば一緒だと思うんだけどな
Well, I think that (=eating something raw) makes no difference if/once it has been put into the mouth.
