Cut fronds and leaves off fennel, reserving leaves. Cut bulbs lengthwise into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Sprinkle both sides with all but pinch of the salt ; let stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in bowl, cover onion with cold water; let stand for 30 minutes.

Rinse fennel slices and pat dry. Gently toss with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil and pepper. Place slices on greased grill over medium-high heat or under broiler; cook, turning once, for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

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.
