  • Alternate the lamb, pineapple, red pepper, cherry tomatoes and onion wedges on skewers. 
  • Grill over hot coals for 12 to 15 minutes, basting with reserved marinade and turning frequently. 
  • Serve on a shallow bed of fresh rosemary for a dramatic presentation, with rice pilaf as a side dish.
