For the lamb skewers: Cut the lamb into 3 cm (approximately 1 1/4 inch) cubes. Place in a bowl.

For the marinade: In another bowl, stir the red wine with the juniper berries, bay leaf, herb bouquet and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the marinade over the lamb, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

The next day, remove the cubes of lambs from the marinade and drain on paper towel. Thread the meat onto wooden skewers, brush with oil and set aside.

For the fruit and vegetable skewers: Drain the pineapple slices and cut into quarters. Alternately thread the pineapple chunks, onions, tomatoes and bell peppers onto wooden skewers. Brush with some of the lamb marinade.

For cooking: Cook the lamb skewers and fruit and vegetable skewers on a charcoal grill.
