Drain onion and place in bowl; toss with remaining salt and 1 tsp (5 mL) each of the lemon juice and remaining oil. Divide among plates; top with fennel.
Drizzle remaining lemon juice and oil over fennel slices; scatter olives and capers over top. Garnish with reserved fennel leaves and lemon wedges.
