Salt and pepper the shrimp. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Quickly sauté the shrimp until they begin to turn pink. Prepare in several batches if necessary in order to avoid steaming. Drain on paper towels. In a large, tightly-covered container, layer lemon slices, shrimp, a sprinkle of capers and onion rings. Create layers until all ingredients are used. Pour dressing (recipe follows) over layers and refrigerate at least three hours, occasionally inverting the container. Drain to serve.
