Reduce heat to low; cook until couscous is al dente & water is evaporated, 10–12 minutes. Cover to keep warm.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add salmon & cook until well browned, 2–3 minutes per side. If you would like your salmon cooked more, sear for 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Add sundried tomatoes, cream cheese, half of the parmesan, 2/3 of oregano. Cook, stirring, until cheese melts. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Return salmon to skillet and cover to keep warm.
Lay spinach on top of couscous & cover; allow to wilt, about 2 minutes. Fluff with a fork & mix to evenly distribute spinach.
Spoon pilaf onto plates. Serve salmon alongside tomato sauce spooned over the top. Garnish with remaining parmesan. Enjoy!
