This photo deserves an Oscar.

An image recently surfaced of Turkish chef and butcher Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, throwing some seasoning on Leonardo DiCaprio's steak as only he can do. The Oscar winner -- toothpick in mouth, hat on head -- looks in awe of Salt Bae's famous technique.

Gökçe, who is reportedly based out of Abu Dhabi and is set to open his own steakhouse in New York City, has garnered quite the celebrity fan base. Both Rihanna and Ben Affleck have been spotted wearing Salt Bae T-shirts, while Late Late Show host James Corden did an entire segment on the meme star, calling his seasoning skills "the most erotic” thing he’s ever seen.

"He's like the Christian Grey of Turkish meat," Corden quipped. "This guy has got it all. He's got the looks of A.J. from the Backstreet Boys -- and meat."

Last August, he got the meme treatment once again when he was spotted pranking his Wolf of Wall Street co-star, Jonah Hill, by running up to him on the street and pretending to be a crazed fan. Check out the epic moment:
