Heat oil in a large heavy frypan or deep fryer to hot (180 degrees C).
In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, parsley, coriander and crabmeat.
Place 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the centre of each wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton wrapper over the stuffing to make a triangle or a half moon, depending on the shape of the wonton wrappers you have purchased. Moisten the edges with a little water and seal. Place prepared wontons under a slightly moist paper towel until ready for frying.
Add 3 or 4 wontons to the hot oil and cook until golden brown, turning once. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Repeat until all wontons have been fried. Serve hot.
