Add the soy sauce and set aside. Heat the canola oil in a deep pan until the oil is just bubbling, then gently place each fillet in the pan and cook until the coating is golden brown. Place the fillets on a plate covered with paper towel to remove excess fat. Preheat the oven to 350°F and cook the fillets for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
