Canned shellfish dips, a staple of 'fifties and 'sixties gatherings; which still have some mileage:

Leo Dubey's HOT CRAB DIP (imagine, 35+ years ago, from  a chain-letter)

1  8-ounce package cream cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream
ounces can crab, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped onion
teaspoon horseradish
teaspoon each --
         salt, pepper, paprika (hot) and parsley flakes
Slivered almonds for topping.

Soften cream cheese. 
Add remaining ingredients.
Sprinkle with slivered almonds and bake at 350
F.  for  30 minutes.
Serve with crackers for dipping/spreading.

 An alternative -- with a successful track record at parties -- Hilda's CLAM DIP
