Sea Salt is just fine.

It's best to measure your salt and other similar ingredients by weight rather than volume but if you're stuck with what they've altready written, here's a quick table (from amazingribs.com):

Salt
1 teaspoon Morton's table salt =
1.5 teaspoons Morton's Kosher Salt =
1.8 teaspoons Diamond Crystal Brand Kosher Salt =
1.8 teaspoons Morton's Pickling Salt =
3 to 4 or more teaspoons of sea salt

Here's the inverse:

1 teaspoons Morton's Kosher Salt =
2/3 teaspoon of table salt =
1.1 teaspoons Morton's Pickling Salt =
1.1 teaspoons Diamond Crystal Brand Kosher Salt =
2 to 3 teaspoons or more of sea salt

1 cup table salt = 8 ounces by weight

As mentioned above salt grains vary, even among kosher and sea salt. The above guideline posted by Ka Honu should help, but I notice they give the wrong amount for the weight of 1 cup of table salt. The weight of a cup of table salt is a little over 10 ounces, and Morton's Kosher salt is 8 ounces per cup. So I don't know how accurate the rest of the chart is. I also believe that Morton's Pickling Salt and table salt are the same weight and grain size.
