Transfer pepper to a medium bowl, and cover immediately with plastic wrap. Let steam 15 minutes. Discard skin, stem, seeds, and ribs; slice pepper lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick strips, and set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add roasted pepper; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 30 seconds. Raise heat to medium-high. Add half the spinach, and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add remaining spinach, and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes more. Stir in salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and serve.
