I just saw this - somehow it ended up in my spam. I agree, fish sauce is a good substitute, as is anchovy paste.

I'm pretty sure anchovies are what make bagna cauda bagna cauda, but I think the recipe would still be good without them. I don't know that I'd substitute sardines. Maybe fish sauce if you have some? Or even Worcestershire sauce? (Both are made with anchovies.)
