For the Bisque::

Heat a tablespoon of oil in a saucepan and add the pre-prepared carrot, onion, celery and first half of the fennel (not the tomato). Add the brandy.

Remove the lobster head. Use a food processor to blend the remainder all together.
For the Blue-eye fillets::

Down, until skin is crispy.
Place fillets in a small baking tray, skin side down and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 7 minutes.
