Help! My clam dip is boring.

I made clam dip and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. I hate to say this but it's dull. It needs something to punch it up.

This is what I put in it (measurements are approximate):
6 oz. canned clams
6 oz cream cheese
2T each of sour cream and mayo
2T minced shallot
2T parsley
quite a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
few dashes of Crystal hot sauce
garlic powder
Old Bay seasoning
lemon juice
clam juice to thin it out

It doesn't taste like much more than cream cheese/sour cream. Anything else I could add to make it more interesting?
