please note that here recovery.img is file name. so if your downloaded file has diffrent name then replace recovery.img with that name.
for example , if your downloaded CWM recovery file has name "recovery" than you have to write this “fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" , .img should  not be written twice,
GENERAL FORM IS fastboot flash recovery filename.img
