Heat the canola oil in a skillet. Take each shrimp and first dredge in the egg mixture and then in the bread crumb. Once coated place on a plate and press any loose crumbs onto the shrimp. Once oil is hot, place the shrimp in the pan and cook about 3 minutes each side on medium low heat as to not burn. Squeeze some lime juice over the shrimp just before removing from stove.
