Using mortar and pestle or bottom of pot, crush fennel seeds.

In large bowl, toss cauliflower with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil, fennel seeds, salt and pepper; spread on large rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 450°F (230°C) oven until golden and tender-crisp, about 20 minutes. Let cool.

Slice florets into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices or bite-size pieces; place in large bowl. Add olives, raisins and capers.

Whisk together remaining oil, lemon juice and anchovy paste; pour over cauliflower mixture and toss to combine. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
