I've just been studying this in biology. Interesting question...I reckon proteins came first to form very basic organisms and then they went on to produce DNA and so on.

As I recall most the enzymes we used to build mRNA are inherited from our mother, or passed down from her so thus the Protein came first in our bodies. I think. Probably. Well...no DNA came first and the proteins came with it and this reminds me I should be studying for my biology final right now.

Well, right now it seems like the field is favoring RNA over protein in this debate, based on the RNA world hypothesis. In a nutshell this hypothesis is based on evidence that RNA can perform the tasks of ribozomes which leads to the idea that with this ability RNA would be able to support life independently of proteins to replicate. But this is still a hypothesis, check back if it moves up to theory level.

Interesting stuff.
