Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe went viral for adding salt to his meat. On Jan. 7, 2017, Gökçe — now known as “Salt Bae” — uploaded an Instagram video that got 2.4 million views in 48 hours. Now the video has over 16 million views.
The video features the chef slicing up a tender Ottoman steak and then grabbing a pinch of salt from his wooden bowl. He then salts the meat, which earned him his nickname “Salt Bae.”
