On a plate, mix the beaten egg and fillets; sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Prepare a second plate with crumbs and pepper, and coat the fillets.
You can bake or cook the fillets in an oiled large skillet.
For baking, heat oven to 450 degrees. In a greased shallow baking dish, bake 5 to 10 minutes or until fillets flakes easily with fork. If you choose chicken fillets, bake 15 to 20 minutes.

Mix corn flour with the salt and water to make a soft dough and clay. This process may take 8-10 minutes. Make sure the flour is well mixed. You must add water as needed.
