This is a copycat recipe from Cheesecake Factory. I had it the first time last year in 2007 and I can't count how many times I've had it since then. Hope this turns out okay, courtesy of recipelink.com Source: Chef,Jennifer Martinkus and Derrin Davis

    Could you use salmon instead of mahi mahi?

    This was a great dinner. It was a little labor intensive, but well worth the end result and all the wonderful flavors. I used fresh herbs from my garden and kalamata olives. We did not modify this recipe a bit, nor would we recommend any changes. Thanks for a lovely meal and one that we will be making again.

    my boyfriend really loved this. he's not too big of an olive person but this really worked well for him.

    Quite tasty and good for a change of pace. In a pinch dry substitutions will work but of course compromise the fresh taste.
