"Hi - Table salt and kosher salt are interchangeable by *weight* (as in, 5 grams of table salt is the same as 5 grams of kosher salt). However, generally you should only use *half* by *volume* if using table salt (1 teaspoon kosher salt = 1/2 teaspoon table salt). This is because table salt is much more granular than flaky kosher salt, and you end up with more table salt in the same volume teaspoon measurement as you would with kosher salt. In general, with most cooking it's best to use kosher salt as your default, unless the recipe specifically calls for table salt. That way you don't end up with overly salty food because you were inadvertently adding double the salt by using table salt. Sorry for any confusion, but hope that makes sense!"
