What recovery are you using? Twrp is a recovery.

Posting images on XDA from google drive can be tricky, so here
OtterX Bootloader
Don't use Kindle Fire with the FFF Bootloader, just press power button and select recovery mode

If you don't have a custom recovery yet, use Fastboot.exe commands like you did to flash bootloader

try holding the power button, release button when recovery mode is selected

Kindle Fire Utility usually installs both TWRP and Bootloader, even if you just selected one of them.

that is fastboot, but don't use KFU, in twrp install zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.zip from my flashable recoveries thread

If you are planning on returning to stock make sure you
verify md5 checksum.
wipe data/factory reset in twrp before installing update.zip
or just install my pre-rooted 6.3.3
