Is Fish Subject to Bishul Akum Nowadays?

QUESTION

Chicago, IL

Is fish no longer subject to bishul akum since the spread of sushi has rendered it something that people eat raw?

ANSWER

I think if what was cooked was fresh enough to be eaten raw—I.e., sushi grade—that it probably is excluded from bishul akum. (SA YD 113:1, Arukh HaShulchan YD 113:12).
