As PuritanSoul stated, the trick is to let your ship(s) sink BEFORE you start killing enemies. Enemies drop a lot more recovery cards if your ships are destroyed.

A very easy and fast way to do this is on Mission 3, Overrun. The right side of the grid is covered by an Alien turret. The turret can sink a single ship in about 30 seconds. Move your boats in range, let them sink, THEN start killing enemies. Doing this I had 2 recovery cards by the time I cleared the first bunker (thats about 6 dead aliens). Each time you recover a ship, immediately move it into the kill zone and wait for it to sink before killing more AI.

Earned this one before the mission ended. Not sure if difficulty matters, but I was on Admiral.
