Dubai-based Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, is taking the world by storm...because of the way he sprinkles salt.  

It all started when Gökçe -the owner of popular steakhouse Nusr-et located in both Turkey and Dubai- posted a video on Instagram on Jan 7. In it, you can see Gökçe masterfully sprinkling salt onto a specialty Ottoman steak. 

The video has racked up over 2 million views on the social media platform since then. 

Soon after, #SaltBae began trending ... and people fell in love with him, because let's face it, he's redefining chefs ... and steaks ... and salt.

The sibling war needs a #SaltBae judge

Some just didn't get why he sprinkles salt that way

Some just wanted a piece of that mouth-watering steak
