Preheat a barbecue grill until hot.
Thread lamb pieces onto the soaked skewers, alternating with the yellow capsicum and adding 2 slices of red onion per skewer.
Mix together the oil and fresh mint and brush over the lamb skewers. Season.
Place on the hot grill and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until the lamb is medium-rare.
If you prefer your lamb not pink in the center then cook for an extra 2 minutes in total.
