You need a low bodyfat %.

That involves a caloric deficit if you currently can't see your abs. So if by 'high calorie diet' you mean a diet in which you're in caloric surplus, don't expect to see abs until you start cutting. General rule of thumb if they start to show at around 12-13% bf (give or take) and they look really defined at 9-11%. Obviously diet and training dependant.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with getting in a decent amount of fats, either. Just make sure a good portion of them are EFA's.
