In a small bowl or jar with a lid, make the spice blend. Mix together the paprika, onion powder, garlic granules, white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, celery seed and salt. Coat the fish fillets with the spice mixture, and allow to sit at room temperature for no longer than 30 minutes.
Heat a heavy frying pan over high heat. Add the oil, and heat until it is almost smoking. Place the fillets in the pan, and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork. Remove from the pan, and place onto slices of white bread. Pour pan juices over them and squeeze lemon juice all over.
