Alcohol in Food

Q:

Is it Permissible to Cook Food with Alcohol? You go to a restaurant and on the menu you find a seafood dish that has been cooked with alcohol. The waiter informs you that the alcohol content of this food has been ‘burned off’ by cooking. Is it permissible to eat this seafood?

A:

Salam Alaykum,
The alcohol may be burnt off but the food has become Najis and cannot be consumed
